OUCE student ends life

By St. Anik On September - 5 - 2008 ADD COMMENTS

A Civil Engineering student of OUCE Naga Malleswari reportedly ended her life by hanging herself with her ‘dupatta’ from the ceiling of her hostel room at the ladies hostel on the Osmania University campus. Her roommates found the room locked from inside around 3 p.m. and as she did not open the door despite repeated knocks, they alerted the security staff, who forced open the door to find her hanging from the ceiling, following her detention as she failed to clear all her first year subjects and hence couldn’t be promoted to the third year.                                The girl’s suicide sparked off protests from students who demanded scrapping of the detention system in the University engineering colleges. An agitation was organized earlier by the students of the OU-affiliated colleges due to which a committee was set up with University authorities recently following which the affiliated colleges were exempted from the clause. But, the relaxation was not extended to the University College.             Following the suicide, student unions called in for a bandh on Thursday and Friday. Shocked with the suicide of the student and bowing to the pressure of the student groups, university authorities announced that the detention rule would be revoked and all detained students will be allowed to appear for III year examinations and attend the classes.              Principal Prof. D.N. Reddy, said that students can now have 50 per cent backlogs of the two previous years combined for getting promoted and also announced Rs. 4 lakh ex-gratia to the family of Naga Malleswari which would be given from the internal resources of the OUCE . Interestingly, the girl had just one backlog of first year and surprisingly did not seek revaluation.
